The State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) has debunked claims by the rival All Progressive Congress (APC) hat its members have decamped to the new party.
The State Chairman of the PDP, Brother Felix Obuah made the denial while reacting to comments credited to APC governorship candidate in last April gubernatorial election, Dr.Dakuku Peterside that some members of the PDP are planning to decamp to the APC in the next few months.
Obuah stated that “claim by Mr. Dakuku Peterside of the All Progressives Congress, APC, that some of its members and leaders are planning to decamp to the APC stems out of his emotional trauma for losing the governorship election and his sudden realization that he cannot be governor of the State.”
The party chairman disclosed that in less than 100 days in office of the State Governor, Barrister Nyesom Wike, more than 3000 members of the APC, including those recruited to manage APC media propaganda structure have all decamped to PDP.
He boasted that by 100 days of the administration of Governor Wike more members of the APC will join the PDP in Rivers, having been disappointed by leaders of the Party, who have continued to tell lies and engaged in propaganda in their activities.
Obuah stated that rather than admit the further depletion of the existing APC infinitesimal membership status in Rivers State, Dakuku Peterside in his habitual trait of spreading falsehood, is claiming otherwise.
The PDP pointed out that Dakuku Peterside’s stock in trade is spreading of falsehood, and recalled the infamous Bayelsa Industrial Court ruling, which Peterside also mischievously masterminded.
Obuah advised Dakuku and other drowning APC leaders to desist from spreading damaging and dangerous falsehood capable of causing undue anxiety and throwing Rivers State into crisis, and charged the people of the State and all Nigerians to disregard such claim by the APC confusionists, call Dakuku and allies of the APC.
